Every January 1st, millions of people head to their local gyms, bound and determined to “get fit” as their New Year Resolution. For many years, this was ME. I had a gym membership that was rarely used. I didn’t know what the heck I was doing in the gym. I mean, I knew how to use the elliptical and the treadmill, maybe do a few bicep curls and sit ups. But I just couldn’t create a routine for myself that was actually effective in helping me finally lose the weight.
I struggled to lose weight for YEARS! When all along, the solution to my struggles was right in front of me, in the form of a fitness infomercial lol. Yes, I’m talking about the 21 Day Fix, you’ve seen them, c’mon! I actually didn’t see it for the first time on TV, but I saw a friend posting about it on social media and it piqued my interest. She had just had a baby, and struggled to lose the weight after. She had tremendous success with this program and I was sold! For both of us, the nutrition was the game changer we needed. I was eating so many “low fat” and “fat-free” processed foods in an attempt to lose weight and I rarely ate whole foods. Making the switch was key in my success, along with following correct portion sizes.
I have completed a dozen or so at-home fitness programs in the last 3+ years after finishing the 21 Day Fix. I haven’t paid for a gym membership since, don’t need to. The truth is, I have everything I need to be successful right here at home! It’s amazing what people spend on gym memberships these days, and with the upcoming New Year, the gym is going to be a zoo! Umm, no thank you.
I am determined to finish 2017 stronger than ever and prepare my body for my next at-home fitness program, the 80 Day Obsession. I have a blog post detailing this not-yet-released program (launching in January 2018) and you can learn all about it HERE.
Who’s ready to FINALLY make 2018 the year of health & happiness!?
